    Hand controls with a right hand brake

    For the past 5 years I've been using Suregrip push-rock hand controls (and before that push-pull). Since I can only steer with one hand, I tend to keep my right hand at the top of the wheel for...

    I have a pair of their curve-L handrims. I thought the shape felt better to grip than Natural Fits. Unfortunately I didn't get the grip version, so they're too slick to effectively push off of - I...

    Yeah, I actually loved my Golz. Used a pair almost exclusively for 3.5 years. I took my Golz on a trip for New Years (didn't trust the airline with CF wheels). Turns out it was a smart move! I was in...

    Spinergy carbon blade wheels

    Has anybody tried the new Spinergy carbon blade wheels? I decided to splurge on a pair with my new TR3 and thought I'd leave a few thoughts about them.

    TR3 CoG question

    I'm in the process of speccing out a new TR3. I really want the bottom tubes to be curved in the rear instead of the box weld, but this requires a CoG of at least 3.5".

    So two questions:

    I went back at it with WD40 and a hammer this morning. The bearing's outer surfaces were almost completely corroded. I'm surprised it still spun at all (and this was the fork that I didn't bend!)

    Replacing ZR forks

    Last weekend I had the awesome experience of throwing myself out of my chair. My caster hit a crack in the sidewalk at just the right angle. Thankfully, other than my bruised ego, I'm fine. My...

    Bearing spacing questions

    I'm currently using Golz Twin-Star Exchanges (540) on my ZR2. I haven't been that happy with how these wheels have held up and I am looking to replace them. I'm leaning towards Topolino's WX2.5s.

    I'm in the process of getting a new chair and I've had some issues with my DME's measurements, so I'm triple checking all of his work.

    Quick follow-up about COG: the TiLite website says the ZR has 2.25" of adjustability for COG. Will playing with the COG on the ZR conflict with alignment of the front casters?

    The +2" is an error in the CAD. It should only be +1. I'm in a 17" with 80 degree front right now. I'm adding the +1" so I can tighten the front angle to 85 degrees. I don't have too many...

    I'm in the process of ordering a new chair and had a question about COG.

    I'm going from a 18x17, 80 deg ZRA to a 16x17+1, 85 deg ZR. In the attached CAD, the frame depth is wrong...

    My feet don't sit flat on my foot plate. I keep my feet tucked in with the ball of my foot resting right at the cross bar of the foot plate.

    Thanks for the reference. I was just using fingertips as a reference point. My balance was off (harder to do a wheelie) and I couldn't reach back as far while pushing. It is good to know...

    Impact of cushion on RSH?

    I just got a new cushion that makes me sit up higher than my old one. My finger tips no longer reached my wheel hubs, so I had to lower my RSH by .5" (dump is now 3"). Today I switched back to my...
